in reply to When 100% Code Coverage Backfires

I'm a bit confused. If you need the test, then there must be some way to reach it, if you don't then its not needed. I don't understand how you think you can never reach it AND still must have the condition. If you are afraid of them changing something earlier, then don't you need a test earlier in the code to make sure that it is a comment so that if it is changed that test will fail?
